Season's Greetings (paper tearing)

Hi, everyone!
Finally I finished a card for Hero Art's 'Papertearing' challenge this week (October 19th - October 25th). Actually I made a card for HA challenge for the first time in about a couple of weeks.

Originally I'm not good at taking torn paper into the cards. Especially, it's difficult for me to combine it with Hero Arts stamp images.But I made this to use vellum paper and masking tapes made by Japanese Washi paper, since I could get some imaginations from the articles on HA blog.

Here is my card, 'Season's Greetings (paper tearing)'.

And this is a closeup.
*The coloring on vellum are all copics.
  While looking these photo, I'm think about whether the blue masking tape is needed or not. There was one more blue masking tape on a diagonal line, and I changed it to the circle shaped die cut, the star image was heat-embossed. I was better that I changed it to lighter color, or took off both, maybe... (???)
Anyway, what I'm convinced is 'I need the time quite a while for thinking about the finished work.' :(

stamp used:
HA Clear Design Holiday Cheer/ CL359
HA Collage Season's Greetings / K4827
HA Design Blocks Moddern Lines / S5218

other supplies:
Bazzil Basics Kraft, American Crafts CS, White Vellum
Ranger Perfect Medium, Embossing Powder / Seafoam white,

Have a beautiful weekend and the next week!
